Kula Negroni – Julie Reiner

Here’s the thread that inspired the KULA Negroni recipe and the film!

When I opened my eyes I was in bed, at home. For a moment I thought it had all been a dream but then I realised that I was holding a fragrant red strawberry in my hand. I ran to the window but the sea in front of me was as calm as ever, as far as the eye could see.
At that moment I realised that that night, a mixture of dreams and reality, was my island’s and my childhood’s way of saying goodbye to me. For me that strawberry, still in my hand, was a precious gift.
I have never forgotten that night and years later, when I began working as a bartender, that strawberry was the inspiration behind my masterpiece, the KULA NEGRONI.

Kula Negroni


1 oz. Strawberry-infused Campari
1 oz. Cinzano Vermouth Bianco
1 oz. London Dry Gin
Orange Twist

In a mixing glass, combine Strawberry infused Campari, Cinzano Vermouth Bianco and London Dry Gin.
Add ice and stir.
Strain over one large ice block in a rocks glass.
Garnish with orange twist and a fresh strawberry.

These cocktails sound absolutely delish. It makes me want to hit my favorite liquor places to stock my bar with the fixings for these cocktails. YUMMY!! I love the films! Clive Owen is amazing.
